My objective, by teaching golfers to consistently make good golf shots, is to allow them to better enjoy the game because playing to one's full potential makes the game fun to play. The concept is for the golfer is to use as much of his or her own natural athleticism by promoting the proper set-up, alignment, ball position and posture. When the set-up is properly established, one's body weight can be transferred to a completed, full back-swing and one can freely swing through and past the ball to a full and balanced finish position. I prescribe proper swing development drills to enhance muscle memory, which positively contributes to a more natural golf swing. My students learn to develop good golf habits that are much harder to break than bad golf habits. The end result is a more proper, consistent and repeating golf swing.
